Caroline Ricketts, formerly Bivand
Does anyone have any information about Caroline Ricketts, born c. 1820 probably in Worcester? I cannot trace a marriage certificate, but on the birth certificate of her 1st child (of 12 born to her and John Ricketts) she is listed as "formerly Bivand". At the time of the 1st child's birth (William, b. 1842) she was living in Silver Street, Worcester. All subsequent children were born in Birmingham. John was a cordwainer/boot-maker. There was a family with the surname of Bivand (or Bevan, for some family members) living in Worcester at the same time. The head of the family, Aaron, was also listed as a cordwainer. Although I have found a good deal of information about Caroline's life after she "married" John Ricketts, her early life and original maiden name remains a mystery. Any help would be appreciated.
